Dr. Lilia I. De Guzman has been chosen as the 2012 recipient of the James I. Hambleton Award by the Eastern Apicultural Society of North America.

The Hambleton Award was established in 1973 to honor outstanding scientists in apicultural research. There were many strong candidates nominated. However, the Award Committee based their decision on Dr. De Guzman's decades of productive research and the apicultural aspects of that work.
